Resplendent with beauty, Dal Lake in Srinagar is one of the most visited tourist destinations in Kashmir valley. The exceptional charm and exquisite surroundings of Dal Lake attract tourists from all over the world. It is also the second largest lake in Jammu and Kashmir that offers a picturesque and mesmerizing view of the majestic mountains and its exotic surroundings to the travelers.

Shikaras at Dal Lake Srinagar are the cultural symbol of Kashmir, just like the Venetian gondolas. Travelers will also come across many oarsmen in colorful Phi Ran, which is a long embroidered woolen gown and a Shikaras with colorful cushions and floral canopies.

The temperature during this time of the month varies between 10?C to 30?C. The winters are too cold in Dal Lake Srinagar as the temperature drops down to minus 10 degree Celsius and the frozen Dal Lake becomes the cricket playground. There are no fees for Dal Lake Srinagar, but to enjoy the Shikara ride on Dal Lake, tourists might need to spend some money.

      - Hotels mentioned in Itinerary are allotted. - My itinerary got disturbed on 1st day as the roads were closed. - As we need to reschedule our itinerary, I only had to manage everything and come up with the idea so that we won't miss any destination. - Tour agent was relaxed and almost about to skip my Sonmarg destination if I would not have contacted them. - Driver hindi was not fluent but still we somehow managed to understand. - At least Ahmad, the manager, booked Gulmarg hotel at 11th moment and was ready to take permission to allow us to go to Gulmarg on Wednesday even if roads were closed, but he sometimes misunderstood our situation and then started talking bit rudely. - Shikara ride was waste and that guy didn't even complete 1 hr ride, we told him about time but then he was arguing with us. - Overall I could not sit comfortably and could not enjoy my trip as we had to manage many things which are supposed to be managed by agent

      Even after requesting the cab driver for local sighseeing of Badamvari garden (which is not known to tourists), the driver didn’t took us to the said location. Also on the last day the driver hurried us to drop us to airport even when we had time to see Hazratbal dargha. Eventually we couldn’t go n see the dargha. Tulip garden - Unlimited range of tulip flowers with different colour shades. Gulmarg - Snow everywhere, enjoyed alot playing in snow with my daughter. Pehalgam - Aru valley’s scenic beauty, Betaab valley n Chandawari (snow everywhere) Dudhpathri - A new destination not known to outsiders (tourists). Again superb cool temperatures, snow, dudhganga river. Srinagar - Shankaracharya temple, superb 360 view of city, an amazing panoramic view. Very good service by all the hotels as well as the houseboat members. Very warm n caring. Very informative.
